To do so, Murray has to get into the semis, let's say, very fresh and
physically unscathed.

Hot weather makes the clay play faster, but I think hot conditions
would hurt Murray more than Nads.

I think Nadal's first loss at RG will involve some unforseen x factor
(injury or someone like Tsonga on the day), rather than him being
outplayed straight up by a top rival in the late rounds.

i don't consider a new knee injury an "unforseen" problem. in fact it
is a very forseen one for some time and especially right now.

Not even a remote chance.
